I had a shadow box done with my father’s casket flag, shell casing from the 21 gun salute and the funeral program done. Dan did not disappoint. The meticulous work on this is beyond anything I could have dreamt of. All I could think is how proud my father would be to see this. Dan is a true artist and I will never go anywhere else again for my framing needs. Thank you Dan!
Dan did a great job re-matting, “freshening-up” and adding a new protective glass to our neglectd 40-yr.-old signed and numbered print. It looks so much better now.
Thank you, Dan!
We brought a signed Joan Miro print to Dan and he was very helpful picking out the right frame and mat as well as explaining the benefits of museum quality glass. The final product was perfect.

“Dan is an incredible talent. His work is fantastic. He’s framed several of my paintings, and he did exactly what I asked for. I couldn’t be more pleased!!!”

“I recently had a photo/diploma montage matted and framed here, and “Frame Station” did a wonderful job.
The matting job was especially difficult because the three separate pieces that needed matting were fixed in place and therefore the mat cuts needed to precisely coincide with the material being matted — no easy task.
Well done Dan! ”

I am in the art business, so framing is very important to me, both in terms of appearance and conservation. Frame Station is consistently excellent on all counts, and have probably used them for more than 20 pieces . Have recommended to my family (who now also uses Frame Station) and all my friends.

They reframed a picture to match another picture and did a great job!

The quality was exceptional. Professional job, and the fine details were covered. Highly impressed by the work. The owner is extremely friendly and is a joy to work with. We will highly recommend this framing shop to friends. We will look around our home for more pieces to frame or re-frame.
This shop did a great job framing our art work. What I liked best about Dan was: 1. He respected our budget and did his best to work with the frames and types of glass that we could afford, always with a positive attitude and much respect, never rushing us even when other customers came into the shop. 2. When we came in with our high energy son, he gave him paper and crayons. 3. He helped me fit everything into my car so that it was safe for transport. 4. He told me the exact measurement from the ceiling I should hang a particularly large work that he framed, so that I wouldn’t be bumping it against the ceiling trying to hang it. 5. When he accidentally framed two works with a mat, unlike what I had asked for, he very graciously redid it the way I wanted, and had them ready the next day. We will for sure be going back there. Dan is very kind, calm, sensitive to the treatment of quality artwork…….and has that cute Irish accent 😉
Took 2 large photographs for framing. Needed color coordinated frames and matting. Met Dan, owner who took considerable effort in providing multiple matting color coordinations, as well as discussion of where photos to be hung and wall colors. The frames were overwhelming in choices, but Dan patiently selected multiple alternatives and provided time for selection without any attempt to hurry process. Promised a 7-10 day delivery and came in a day early. Very pleased with both items and they look just as I hoped on my walls. Definitely recommend for future use myself and to friends.

I had four front pages from newspapers framed.
They were helpful, courteous, prompt, pleasant. An excellent experience.
Dan was very persistent in helping me pick the right color mats – AND patient. Great quality workmanship. I am extremely pleased with the end result.

Both projects turned out exceeding my expectations! Dan worked with me on colors, materials & price options to produce two beautiful pieces! The first project went so well I bought the second one in a few days after I picked up the first!
We have used them several times and they are a terrific company. They are extremely good at making recommendations to make the best of your project. They are really good at what they do, I highly recommend them.
This is the third time we’ve had custom work done by the shop (All A’s the first two times). Dan is very attentive and helpful in the frame selection process (multiple options at different price levels). He is very cooperative during the entire process and provides the finished product on or before the delivery date. He does high quality work and we’re very happy with each and every piece (over 10 now – largest 36″ X 48″ and smallest 6″X 8″). We already have plans for future work with him.
I had several professional diplomas and certificates which I wanted to frame sandwiched between 2 glass panes so that they appear to ‘float” in the frame with only transparent glass between the outer edge of the certificate and mat and the edge of the frame. Dan was patient, professional and very knowledgeable is listening to what i wanted and helping identify suitable mating, frames and glass for the job. In completing the project, Dan also found creative ways to adapt his installation using the less than ideal design of the frames selected to effectively minimized visibility of the frame’s unfinished interior surface through the transparency of glass around the frame’s interior edges. He worked very quickly, gave a good price for the work done and even replaced some broken glass on a small framed print at no additional charge from his inventory of glass cut-offs. I’ll definitely use him again and would highly recommend him for any framing project you may have.

“Dan is a pleasure to work with and is a picture frame craftsman. I used one framer for more than 30 years before she retired. I am a finicky artist who seeks perfection and The Frame Station and Gallery in South Pasadena delivers.”

“I found an old oil painting of a family house, on the Jersey Shore. The Frame Station made it come back to life, with their great suggestions in colors to matte and frame the oil painting. Excellent service, and was quick.”

“Dan took my poster and made it a work of art. I highly recommend the non glare glass. He did an outstanding job.”
